This condition is known as folliculitis.
Symptoms of Chin Folliculitis
Symptoms of folliculitis include small, red swellings and pus filled swellings (like the yellow one in the picture) which are centered around hair follicles on the chin or beard area.
Treatment of Chin Folliculitis
The treatment of folliculitis is as follows:
Shower at least once a day
Apply antibiotics on the affected area. Examples include Mupirocin (Bactroban), Fusidic acid (Fucidin) and Clindamycin (Cleocin T, Evoclin foam).
Take antibiotics that are taken by mouth. Examples include Flucloxacillin, Dicloxacillin (Dynapen) and Cephalexin (Keflex).
Take pain killers
Take pain killers by mouth to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Examples include non-steroidal anti-Inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like indomethacin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve).
Outlined above is the treatment of folliculitis regardless of whether it is on the chin or another part of the body.
In your case you will also need to consult your nearest dermatologist so that they can examine the yellow area, which is a collection of pus, to determine whether it is deep and it needs to be removed by a procedure known as incision and drainage (1&D).
